Since my last post, I have been very fatigued and not feeling very well…thus I have not done anymore ATC’s nor have I finished my Valentine’s project. I feel unaccomplished because of this but what can I do. Starting March 1st I will stop producing art as I need to back up my studio.
On April 19th, I will be flying to Japan. I will be living there for at least a year. In my heart, I want to stay longer. I did do a couple of Valentine’s Day photos.
I have just about finished my space themed year of the Rat ATC (artist trading card). I noticed I didn’t line the planet in the upper left corner. Other than that, it is done.
This next ATC I am having some issues with.
The main problem is deciding what colors to use. I want the star to appear iridescent like gem and rainbow will be the tail. I just know that the starry gem is going to take a while to do. I will have to build layers to get it how I want it. I am using gouche and acrylic on this ATC. The red and gold are working very well for me. The border will be gold leaf (using a gold leafing pen). I will definitely use those colors on the 3rd ATC I am working on!
